Once some fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs make up their mind, that’s it.
I’ve seen us run Larry Murphy and Bryan McCabe out of town.
I’ve seen us try and fail to do the same with Jake Gardiner. (Sure, he eventually left, but only after eight season and becoming one of the best defenseman in franchise history).
I’ve seen us refuse to fully embrace Hall of Famer and best player to ever where the Toronto Maple Leafs uniform Mats Sundin, and should-be Hall of Famer Tomas Kaberle.
It is my hope that William Nylander eventually ends up in the Sundin and Kaberle camp, but who knows?
